Chung will stay at Oregon

A family member tonight confirmed that Patrick Chung has decided to stay put at the University of Oregon rather than enter the 2008 NFL Draft.

Chung's older brother Dale indicated to eDuck Sports that Patrick had changed his mind about entering the NFL Draft this spring and will stay at Oregon for his senior season.

"He's staying put as of 4:50 p.m. Pacific (on Wednesday, Jan. 16th) when I last spoke to him," wrote Dale Chung in an email to eDuck Sports. "My dad confirmed it, so I told you."

Chung was the team leader during the 2007 campaign in tackles with 117 (71 solo) in 13 games. He also had two interceptions, seven pass break ups, nine pass deflections, a forced fumble, and two blocked kicks. On special teams, Chung returned two punts and nine kick offs for 201 yards with a long of 40.

Chung was one of the youngest players to ever take the field for the Ducks. When he was recruited out of Rancho Cucamonga High School he was only 16 when fall camp started his freshman year. Chung will turn 21 on Aug. 19th of this year.
